SBS 2008 and Backup Exec - SP3 Install Error

I was installing Backup Exec 12.5d onto a SBS 2008 Premium Server and ran into an error.

Error: "LU1812: An update failed to install. A program that was part of this update failed . . . " when running LiveUpdate

This pointed to

After much contemplating my navel, installing the MSXML 3 SP7 and all the rest, I closed Backup Exec, right clicked on the Backup Exec icon and selected run as Administrator.

Service Pack installed..

Hope this helps someone.
